CN uses some pretty terrible fonts.

I've seem them use Comic Sans on some official work documents and Droid Sans Mono on yard signs.

They're in good company re Comic Sans, namely CERN, the European Nuclear Physics Research Centre. I think, though, I would have preferred something like Rockwell.

Actually just a station with two platform tracks and two tracks to overtake. Shinkansen don't have quads IIRC.

To stay on topic though. The Tōkaidō Shinkansen does have quads with the Yokosuka line in the Tamagawa area in Tōkyō.

besides riding inside a dirty and uncomfortable railcar all day what exactly do hobos do, drink cheap beer?

i have never understood the whole runaway culture. i understand leaving abusive parents for a better life. but how is riding a train, or hitchhiking, across the country any better?

do you steal, stuff to get, food to eat or sell your body for sex to obtain money?

inb4 it's just the thrill of the ride. i used to drive race cars.

They're actually usually decently clean, excluding coal cars and gondolas. I rode a gondola in the rain for four hours last night. We then gave up on that ride and found a better one. 4 people, 2 rats, 1 do.

Personally I read, sleep or just enjoy the view. I started traveling via ttains because well damn it's easy and free. As for food I mostly dumpster dive, every one with me atm has food stamps, you can also white box outside restaurants. Being homeless is easy as fck if you do it right.

Hobo actually implies that they travel AND WORK. They go somewhere and GET A TEMP JOB and get resources and money and then move along. Its a really neat way to go from place to place.

Tramps are people who travel and DON'T WORK. They are the usual druggies. Burnouts. Gypsies. I hobo a lot and never met a tramp I trusted.

Bums are people who DON'T travel and DON'T work. Bums are the people you see every day in the same place begging for your change. He is the one who is sleeping in that weird camp behind the bushes next to the off-ramp.

Bums and tramps give such a bad name to decent workin' hobo folk. Sometimes makes it hard to make it in certain places. People see you, see the backpack, and instantly assume you're the burnout type. Gets me all kinds of pissed off.

Trains offer amazing free scenic views. Hopping a train gives you an amazing rush and the rhythmic click clacks of the tracks is its own form of meditation. Its simply a great way to get around if you're in the mood to be on a moving metal monstrosity for 16+ hours looking at the scenery, maybe enjoying a book, what have you. If I'm feeling especially social I'll hitchhike, but sometimes I just want to shut the fuck up and relax and watch the beautiful scenery pass me by.

Then just apply for a position with a Class 1, it pays and as long as you've got two legs and two arms you'll easily get above 60k a year.

>but muh scenery

It's private property, if you do something stupid and break your ass you become a pain in the ass for the railroad that owns the property.
You're a vagrant no mater what term you associate yourself with.
